Roosevelt Landslide, 1936/11/07

Published 1936

"Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Democratic party carry forty-six states, losing only little Maine and Vermont, in the mightiest election victory scored by any political organization since the triumph of james Monroe in 1820. Dramatic pictures show outstanding events of an exciting day, with the President voting at Hyde Park, N. Y., and later receiving the cheers and congratulations of his neighbors, Gov. Landon casts his vote at Independence, Kan. Tremendous throngs jam Times Square, New York, celebrating the victory but others 'pay off' election bets in queer and amusing fashion." (some parts silent in this partial newsreel without narration)
